Feller comes from a time when bigotry may have been socially acceptable, but it no longer is. That's why statements of his such as "... made by some Ping-Pong player in China" don't reflect very well on the speaker. Times have changed, and Feller hasn't.

About 12 years ago I attended a card show in Denver where Feller was signing. I stood in line for two hours to meet this American hero, and while he was signing, I said, " Mr. Feller, my dad says that Roger Clemens couldn't hold your jockstrap." He finished signing my ball, looked me straight in the eye and said, "Son, always listen to your dad."
